Sneaky Saturdays

Today's post is number three in the seven week series of Seven Sneaky Secrets Vitamin companies hope you never find out:

Secret Number 4 I've got a Secret

The last three weeks of sneaky secrets were closely related to each other. This week is different. Many companies don’t reveal their proprietary formulas because they don’t want you to know what you’re getting. They list the ingredients in a complex or blend, then list the dosage amounts for the entire blend.

The problem with that is that companies mix inexpensive raw materials together with the expensive good ones. Unfortunately, many times the largest percentage of the mix is the cheap stuff.

Shaklee labeling does in some cases include proprietary formulas, but the difference is in their high standards for including only the highest quality ingredients in the formulations that give the best results. That means basing the formulation on actual science and clinical testing. Each supplement uses the necessary nutrients in the proper amounts for you to actually FEEL the difference in your energy level, your resistance to colds and flu, and to help with long term health.
